Paris Saint-Germain has not yet exercised the option to purchase Mauro Icardi. and for good reason, the French champion wants to keep the Argentine striker but not at 70 million …
The countdown has started for Mauro Icardi. The Paris Saint Germain made the Argentine striker his top priority in attack. There is no question for Leonardo to back off, as confirmed by the Gazzetta dello Sport. But the Italian media also says that the capital’s club does not want to spend 70 million euros as provided for in the clause in the striker’s loan.
The colossal losses linked to the Covid-19 and the stopping of the Ligue 1 championship obviously influence this decision but it is not said that Inter Milan will be very open to the idea of renegotiating the price of this transfer . Charge PSG to be convincing to keep the one who has scored 20 goals in 30 games this season (5 goals in the Champions League, 3 in the French Cup and 12 in the league).
Parisians should nevertheless be wary since, according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal has already received a proposal for an exchange between Mauro Icardi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang! An offer that would not necessarily be to the taste of the Gunners now trained by Mikel Arteta.
In any case, this proves that Inter Milan has no intention of waiting for PSG and leaving all of its eggs in one basket. Parisians have until May 31 to exercise the purchase option for Mauro Icardi. Hurry up…
